Glaucous Gull at Cant Clough Res. 29.2.16




Cant Clough is just over the watershed from Upper Gorple Reservoir.

The gull comes in about 4pm and roosts alone an the otherwise deserted reservoir.
It's quite confiding, and appears to be a small individual, maybe slightly smaller than the average Lesser Black-backed.

With thanks to Ian C. for the tip-off.
